Have you noticed that churches have taken up the fight for fair trade products? It makes me happy to see churches using the pulpit to preach fair labor and livable wages, rather than throwing their moral weight around trying to keep people who love each other from getting married.
Even if, like me, you haven’t darkened the door of a house of worship in years (except for the occasional wedding or bluegrass concert), consider heading over to West Peabody for the North Shore Bazaar at the Community Covenant Church. There will be fair trade products and a local artisan bazaar, as well as educational booths from Boston Faith & Justice Network, The Food Project, and The North Shore Rabbinical Association.
More info here.
Post update: Did anyone go to the Bazaar? How was it?
